14th ANNUAL

 

THE

COOKOFF

Supporting children's health, education, and welfare through the efforts of organizations with impact.

Admission includes unlimited chili tasting, a vote for the People’s Choice Award and access to the silent auction with 100% of the event proceeds going directly to charity.

 

The event will sell out so buy your tickets today!

 

Thanks to Kevin Brown and Jerry Bures of Buckhead Life for donating their time and amazing event space to carry on the tradition another year.

Organizations like the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta, Literacy Action, and Literacy Alliance of Metro Atlanta have received proceeds totaling over $200,000 from past events.

In 2020, the event will support Make-A-Wish Georgia!  Since 1995, Make-A-Wish® Georgia has been granting the wishes of local children facing critical illnesses. More than 20 years later, nearly 8,000 lives have experienced the impact of a life-changing wish. Make-A-Wish Georgia is a movement to renew families and communities disrupted by serious childhood illness. We all have the power to make wishes comes true. To learn how you can become a part of the story, join us on Monday, January 27 at 103 West.

Over $200,000 has been donated to children's charities since the cookoff began in 2005, and because of the generosity of our donors, 100% of every dollar raised is contributed to the cause.  In 2019,  the annual event moved to January to pair two great pastimes – football and chili – just in time for Atlanta to host Super Bowl LIII.   You told us you wanted to be part of game-changing work in the lives of children and families and that is what we are trying to do- through the Food Bank's Kids in Need program, advocacy for intergenerational illiteracy, providing books to schools or working towards a cure for Type 1 diabetes.  The cookoff will return to Buckhead's 103 West on the Monday before the Super Bowl so please join us to taste, vote, mingle and enjoy the auctions and raffles while doing some good.
 
Our Commitment:
All contributions directly support KIDS AND FAMILIES IN NEED.

 

Join us on January 27!
